Grass Clippings

I was asked recently what the dark lines are on the fairways? Due to the volume of rain during recent severe weather events, grass clippings created when mowing the fairways float to the surface and move with the water toward the drainage basins. As the water begins to soak into the soil, the grass clippings are left behind in a clump. The end result is what is now seen below.

As the fairways are mowed and the turf grass continues to grow, these marks will soon disappear. If you ever have any questions you would like answered on this blog, please do not hesitate to ask. Posted by David Dore-Smith Director of Golf Course and Grounds Maintenance
